Game Story

NEW ORLEANS (Ticker) -- With Baron Davis sidelined, the New Orleans Hornets needed a big play from their other All-Star. Jamaal Magloire buried a leaner from the left elbow as time expired to lift the struggling Hornets to an 82-81 victory over the Detroit Pistons, who had their eight-game winning streak snapped. New Orleans received a scare late in the third quarter when Davis, who is fifth in NBA in scoring and fourth in assists, sprained his left ankle diving for a loose ball. He did not return, leaving the Hornets with few options down the stretch against the best defensive team in the league. Detroit's Chauncey Billups buried a 3-pointer with 17 seconds left for an 81-80 edge. New Orleans went to Magloire, who had his shot blocked out of bounds by Pistons center and fellow All-Star Ben Wallace with six seconds to go. The Hornets inbounded to guard David Wesley, whose jumper from the right wing was blocked by Wallace. After blocking the shot, Wallace took off downcourt, leaving Magloire alone to grab the loose ball, spin toward the basket and sink an uncontested jumper. "I was able to get the rebound with ample enough time, and we were able to get the win," said Magloire, who had 17 points and 13 rebounds for his 12th double-double in 15 games. "We were just lucky on the last one," Hornets coach Tim Floyd said. "It fell into an open player's hands and (Magloire) got an open shot." Pistons coach Larry Brown said his team should have been awarded the ball after Wallace blocked Magloire's driving shot with 5.3 seconds remaining. "The referees wouldn't even acknowledge me," Brown said. "Ben blocked the shot and it hit off (Hornets guard Darrell Armstrong) out of bounds. It's a violation. They won't even acknowledge it and that's not right. The game is over if the referee calls the play." Davis, who had 12 points, 10 rebounds and eight assists, is day-to-day. He missed six of eight games from January 21 to February 4 because of an injury to the same ankle. Wesley, scoreless at home in Sunday's one-point overtime loss to Toronto, scored 19 points as New Orleans (37-34) remained 1 1/2 games ahead of fifth-place Milwaukee in the Eastern Conference. The Hornets are just 11-15 since January 28 but 4-0 against Indiana and Detroit, the two best teams in the conference. They have nine losses to teams with losing records during that stretch. "I'm starting to feel that sense of urgency around here," Wesley said. "We know we need to step up every aspect of our game. If we take this effort into the end of the season, we'll be fine." Richard Hamilton scored 17 points to lead six Pistons in double figures and Wallace collected 13, 15 rebounds and five blocks for Detroit, which allowed an opponent to reach 80 points for the first time in nine games. "We had the game where we wanted it," Hamilton said. "We made a stop at the end and then Magloire made a tough shot. We were confident we were going to win. It went the other way." The Hornets trailed 62-57 through three quarters but made their first seven shots of the fourth quarter - including 3-pointers by Wesley, Armstrong and Robert Traylor - to open a 74-69 lead with 6:56 remaining. The Hornets avoided their third straight home loss in March, which hasn't occurred since 1993. "We came off of two very, very difficult losses and it really would've been easy to hang the head," Floyd said. "I was worried about that in the first quarter because we weren't guarding. But we really responded well and played well defensively."
